      Thanks mate. It needs to go faster now, but i'm on my p's and modding the stock engine would be useless since i'm pulling it out for another project when I get off my p's.
      I'm making it look good and doing handling mods and making it nicer and then I will get off my p's and add more power.


      • That looks really good, I might have to give this a go over the weekend...

          • Hi all. It's been a while since i have posted here but I will post a bigger update at a later date. It's sad in a way that this thread has suffered a bit of data loss and is missing some stuff but i'm sure the guys at mcm will get some more back soon. It's good in a way because this car has been though so much in the last two years any way and time for a fresh start.

            For those that don't know where this car is today i'm glad (at times) to say that it's still with me! It's been nearly 5 years of owning this little car and it still makes me smile. A small update, I moved to Townsville yay! And since then this car has taken a good thrashing. I have delivered pizzas in it to get some cash, crashed it twice, used it as a daily and done a lot of big trips in it.

            I have had so many projects on the go and in result i have put the cuore project aside for a while. I have though been fixing all the things wrong with it in the last few weeks and restoring it to the greatness it once was. I will post a bigger update when I get every thing together. For now though I would like to thank the 20k of you who viewed this thread and for all the comments and feedback. Thanks guys!

              Just looked through this thread! Bought my Cuore about 3 weeks ago and have had a ball doing stuff to it. Some stuff quite similar to what you've done, coincidentally..

              Looks good! Looking forward ot seeing the 3 years of update!


              • Update.

                Hi all. I haven't posted to this forum for quite some time now. Happy to report I still have my cuore with no plans to get rid of it yet. Its gone through quite a bit the last few years so here is a quick update and mod list .

                The original engine was close to 200,000kms and started having clutch slip. The plan has always been more power. I finally found a sirion gtvi in rather good condition with some crash history. The first accident was minor and repaired and second one it ended up at the auction still with no reported crash history.

                I did the swap in my yard with some basic hand tools and some careful planning. I will say this once though. It is not easy to do it at all. Then come the little things to make the car work but also make it safe. The car is transformed for sure but I don't think I would do it again simply because it's ok at everything but not one thing in particular. Unlike before,it was a good daily driver and did the job well. Now it's a bit too uncomfortable and it's just a car that makes me smile and I guess that's the use after all

                2001 Daihatsu cuore.
